RBG-Lu Palmer (RIU) On Police Brutality

Called the godfather of Chicago black political activism, Lutrelle “Lu” Palmer was born March 28, 1922, in Newport News, Virginia. While his two older sisters opted for careers in education, Palmer became a journalist when he arrived in Chicago in 1950 with a Ph.D. from the University of Iowa. “The Panther with a pen” spent fifty years galvanizing and informing the black community as a reporter, syndicated columnist, newspaper publisher and radio commentator. From 1983 until his retirement in 2001, Palmer hosted an issues-oriented talk show. Palmer came to Chicago in 1950 as a reporter for the Chicago Defender. He wrote for other newspapers, including the Chicago Daily News, where he also served as a syndicated columnist and editor for the Nashville-based Tri-State Defender. He founded the Black X-Press Info-Paper in Chicago. He was a recruiter, organizer and preceptor for the Associated Colleges of the Midwest from 1970 to 1990. Sometimes Palmer’s positions caused him to quit or lose a job. Illinois Bell canceled its sponsorship of Palmer’s twelve-year-old radio show in 1983 when he became an outspoken supporter of Harold Washington, who, with Palmer’s help, became Chicago’s first African American mayor. As a community activist, he founded the Chicago Black United Communities in 1979 and the Black Independent Political Organization in 1981, and served as chairman of the Extended Services Program for the Group Living Facilities for Boys in 1998.
